Can't help with import regulations in the UK, but I'd think that importing "seedlings" would not be cost effective.

I would have thought Ken Leaver will get you what you want but seedlings or cuttings/ grafts, will be very ralatively expensive.

Older trees.

Lee Verhorevoort did have some good Japanese Black and White Pines so a friend informed the other day when he called in.

Corin at Greenwoods is also worth talking to for certain.
